I have lost count of the number of '... for Dummies' books I have purchased over the years and I think this is number thirty-something. None of these books have proven to be poor value, quite the contrary, they are excellent books, well thought out and clearly written. They are even better value if purchased used, secondhand, nearly new or like new.

This particular book concerns Cisco Networking and in my opinion Cisco itself publish the best books on this their own subject. This is not to say this 'All-in-One' book is greatly inferior. Its advantage is that it effectively embraces 6 books in 1 which has to be good value. Furthermore, much of this book's content is based upon tried-and-tested Cisco texts which are noted for their clarity and ability to explain complex subjects both simply and succinctly. In common with all '... for Dummies' books, the presentation style is aimed at American readers but also for English-speaking overseas markets. From what I have read, this book is intended for the beginner/intermediate reader seeking to learn or refresh their knowledge on what is a very complex technical subject. Advanced readers might like to consider Cisco's own publications which can be purchased for even less money. The '... for Dummies' book is littered with many dozens of illustrations and often pictures are used in place words to help illustrate a concept, frequently in a jokey-style, a hallmark of '... for Dummies' books. If I had to carry just one book with me concerning Cisco Networking, this would be it.

This is very specific to Cisco (the clue is in the title).

Although the principles are generally explained, the book is alomost all about using the Command Line Interface to type in the commands, and does not really relate the more modern HTML (Web Based) interfaces.

Actually learnt a few bits, but much less than I expected, as the amount of detail in most areas obscured the underlying principles (trying to see the wood for trees). Also some of the technical side is out of date, and so some modern methods and techniques simply don't appear in the book at all.

Clearly Cisco stuff is ubiquitous for routing on the net but this book reflects that since it's double the thickness of other dummy books. So definitely worth the value.
